Almost all of these jams are from circulating shows. (Dick's copies, though, often sound much cleaner than my copies!)

Disc 1:
1. Jam-> Goodnight Jam-> UJB Jam - 14min
This is the Alligator jam from 11-1-69. It fades as they start Lovelight. (This is the first live UJB jam.)

2. Jam-> Tighten Up Jam-> Jam - 11min
This is an excerpt from the 8-30-69 Dark Star. It fades as they head back to the second verse. (This is the first Tighten Up jam.)

3. Jam-> The Eleven Jam-> Jam - 33min
This is side B of the 8-28-69 Hartbeats tape (with Howard Wales on organ).

Disc 2:
1. Space-> Jam-> Feelin' Groovyish Jam-> Tighten Up Jam - 14min
This is an excerpt from the 11-2-69 Dark Star. Fades as they return to the second verse.

2. Jam-> The Other One Jam - 36min
From 6-19-68.

4. Jam-> Goodnight Jam - 8min
This is the only *mystery* piece in this collection. It comes from an Alligator jam. Phil strongly teases Lovelight near the beginning, and it sounds like they're about to go into the "Alligator!" vocals - instead Jerry heads for a Goodnight jam, and finishes that with a China Cat tease (!) - then they storm back into Alligator & quickly slide into Caution, where this fades out.
This is extremely similar to the 12-12-69 and 12-30-69 Alligator jams, so it is definitely from a non-circulating Nov/Dec '69 show. Which is very frustrating - judging by this excerpt, the full jam could be even better than the other circulating Alligator>Cautions from this period. (I don't know what show it could be, since almost all the shows around this time are accounted for.)

3. Tuning Jams (11/7/69)
5. Star Spangled Banner (slide flute - 11/7/69)
Wonder why Dick picked these when there was a perfectly good Dark Star jam in this show....

Oh brother! I was expecting this--good job once again LiA!!!

Hmmm--do I get any points for predicting a response around here?

All I know is if our maturity level, as SDH noted some time back, is really about sophomore year in high school, I am sitting just to your left, one seat back, in the classroom waiting for the Christian Brother to pass out the tests...be sure to keep your left arm and shoulder down as you fill in the answers.

And yes, you can have my vending machine recess item, your choice, total value not to exceed $0.25, when 2nd period ends.
